Whenever interviewers venture to ask Darren Criss (Blaine Anderson) about his love life, the Glee cutie is always extremely coy in his response. But his silence on the issue doesn’t necessarily mean he’s single!

And while Blaine is gay, Darren is straight and — quite frankly, we find it a little hard to believe a guy like him isn’t dating anyone. Enter this photo of Darren looking pretty cozy with Mia Swier of the punk rock band Shoot the Freak.

The photo is from a Sunday, April 24, 2011, concert at Don Hill’s in New York. Darren showed up to perform the duet “Dress and Tie” with his longtime friend Charlene Kaye. But Charlene has sung this song without Darren before, so what made him decide to appear for this particular occasion?

The New York Post quotes a source as saying that Darren was at the concert to support Mia, whom their source claims is his on-again, off-again girlfriend. And when asked if he’s single, Darren’s only replied, “I’m Irish.”

What do you think, Gleeks? Is this simply a case of two friends harmlessly holding hands at a concert — or is there a whole lot more going on here?
